    Default 3 Drains!!

    I’m not superstitious at all but last night after a hard day's contracting me and a fellow contractor were walking down the road when I noticed he side stepped a set of 3 drains. I also avoid walking on 3 drains. I asked him why he did it and it’s because of the exact reason I do it. One of his past girlfriends avoided them and because of this he found himself now avoiding 3 drains!!! Anyone else on here do that??

    A lot of ex-servicemen wouldn't take the third light for their fag: WW1 folklore had it that a sniper would spot the first flare of the match, sight on the second and shoot the third...

    Wow I often wondered why it was considered unlucky, nice
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    Were you hopping and skipping down the road hand in hand you big cissies.

    Now if there had been a steaming (dog)turd on the drains I could understand it but to avoid them because an ex-girlfriend used to do it is a bit wet.

    Yes - Mrs. Faqqer started me off on it many years ago, and it's too late to stop now. Glad I'm not alone out there...
